Why is it that with repainting, BA aircraft are losing there names? I know it probably sounds really stupid and trivial, but I think it's much nicer for aircraft to have names. Those being painted in Union Flag colours (eventually the whole fleet) are all called; United Kingdom, Chatham Historic Dockyard or Union Flag.
A fleet of 300 odd aircraft can't one day share 3 names!

Brits are a fussy bunch!! First they complain about all the tails, and then when BA change things they complain about it more still.

French-American actually.... I just like to give the Britts a hard time... I like 'em though.

I wish BA had kept the previous colors... very British, very classy, very nice.

I'm also disappointed that BA have dropped the names. Perhaps they may eventually re-name the fleet.

Iain - before you criticise the English, firstly look inwards.

Also, unless you have something interesting and informative to write, then may I suggest you also use the delete button ( as you have suggested in other posts)

Is BA really dropping the wonderful "world tails" paint scheme... IMO, it was THE most exciting livery out there. Always recognizably British, but still different each time.

If I ever had to choose fleet of a single airline to take the photographs of, it would have been BA.

I agree with Iain, you complain about the word colors (Which, IMHO were some of the greatest colors ever, I loved watching them fly into LHR from my house) and when they are changed you now complain about something else.
